Not Today

Who said love doesn't hurt, wound, scar?
A person who has permitted a loved one to go too far.
She could have ran, but stayed with a man
who kicked her around like a dented tin can.

His past he shared with her,
covered up pain with a fur.
Twisted thoughts, lost hope,
she had found ways to cope.
The young woman remembered when,
trapped she was in dark sin.

"What did I get myself into?"
She took a moment to ask.
While he told her get to work on
yet another meaningless task.

The martyr for all who came before She.
He hit her for what his dad didn't do.
Pushed her for what his mom put him through.
Choked her for what the grandparents knew.
Tripped her for those who lived life the best.
Smothered her for passing yet another test.

All bad memories were supposed to fade away,
because of a special couple's love holiday.
He told her he loved her so very much,
but she flinched everytime he reached out to touch.

He would say anything to keep from being put out,
he knew how he really made her feel when she would shout.

What was she to do now?
Tell him to go away,
Yell at him to go find somewhere else to lay?

She couldn't do it today.

God didn't put you with an abusive mate. Your flesh did.
